My mom is retiring today

December 31 2003

Public congratulations are in order for my mom, who is retiring today after 30 years of service to the US government.  Her career spans four decades, in agencies such as the Corps of Engineers, the US Army base (now closed) at Ft. Sheridan, and the General Services Administration.  She is all set for the next phase -- her at-home technology setup is almost a generation better than mine at the moment (HDTV, surround sound, new 1.6 GHz computer....).  Only one regret from here -- I'll lose my inside source as to how the Notes deployment at GSA is going.  I guess that's an OK tradeoff.
I'll be travelling on the date of her retirement party in January, so this is probably the next best way to say "good job, Mom"!
